Hasty exit from court leads to single-vehicle crash

A man who declined to provide his name did tell the Rossland News one thing following this crash on Monday. The driver said he had just received a disagreeable judgement at the Rossland courthouse and, upset and in haste, exited Columbia Avenue onto the highway to Trail too quickly, began to spin out on the first corner, overcompensated with his steering and drove off the bank on the opposite side of the road, below the Alpine Grind café.
